A Visit to Champagne GOSSET/EPERNAY

Just off Avenue de Champagne in Epernay you will find the Wine House of Gosset, the oldest in the region dating from 1548. They are smaller than some of the more well-known producers but are deeply rooted in the area, working with growers from many different vineyards and employing the unique non-malolactic fermentation process to produce their wines.

After seeing the modern production facilities and exploring the deep limestone caves we were treated to a spectacular five-course lunch with champagne pairings, the highlight being their wonderful Celebris vintage 2007. A truly outstanding champagne to accompany any special occasion.

Our guide Natalie was delightful and the tour will be very enjoyable for anyone interested in learning more about the fine wines of the Champagne region.

A Premier Cru brut Champagne, made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes and vines from around fifteen villages in the Côte des Blancs.

 

Distinguished from the other cuvées of the Gosset range by its prolonged maturation time. Preserved in the cellars of the Gosset house, this champagne has thus benefited from a long rest in the bottle for a minimum of 12 years on the lees.

it evolves with notes of berry fruits and is distinguished by a dressy marriage between freshness and maturity. Very nice balance between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties. A benchmark champagne for lovers of great rosé champagnes!

Before grabbing our train back to Paris we will visit the Musée d'Epernay in the former Chateau Perrier.
